Wheat malt. Raw wheat won't convert itself, and Munich doesn't have any diastatic power beyond what is required to convert itself.

This is sounding daaaamn interesting, particularly because I'd be fermenting it in my room temp apartment closet. I think this one's next in the pipeline after the 60/-. Keep updating!

that looks ok, albeit a little more complicated than my brew. torrified wheat is good stuff, but not sure it belongs in banana bread. replace all your torrified and white wheat with red wheat and it's looking more like my recipe.

make sure the crystal malt and chocolate malt or british, too...they give it that nice grainy/bready taste.

if you want to go your own way, however, that looks like a fine recipe...i would brew it!

temperature is steady at 73°F. i don't think it will change unless we have a heat wave.

i roused the yeast twice, monday night and this morning. shook the hell out of it, let the krausen fall back into the beer and watched it bubble. smells terrific. the krausen has this lovely tan/brown color and the beer has a nice dark reddish-brown hue in the carboy.

I must make this.
In return for your offering of the recipe -- you shall receive a loaf of my Banana Bread and a round of beers on me in the future.

that would be awesome. i love banana bread...haven't had it in years. i could send you a bottle of mine, too, we could do a comparison.

this batch is strictly for bottle conditioning. so is my SMaSH, i'm sending them to family and friends i promised beers but have not yet delivered.

just checked the beer...fermentation is all but finished and it JUST dropped below 70°F. didn't ferment as high as my first batch, but still plenty of banana in the nose. it's going to be consumed very young, too.

i'm going to rack my SMaSH this week and then bottle both of them in about two weeks. they should be ready 4 weeks after. nummy.
